75 C20 long bed 2wd

This truck was bought new in 75 by my late grandpa. We used this on the farm ever since for anything from haulin cattle in the bed before we had a trailer, to haulin wheat when we only had one big wheat truck.More recently it was used to haul diesel fuel to the field for the tractors and pullin the cattle trailer.I finally got my Dad to bring me his 87 F150 so i could beef it up for haulin the tank and fix some other things on it so thats the new hauler and the 75 is mine!!!The grill is gone from a pheasant i hit like twenty years ago ha ha

Re: 75 C20 long bed 2wd

the rear suspension has been a nightmare i got the first set of hangers they were stamped right on them 73-87 C30 not C20 and they were nowhere close to fitting so i call the guy and they offer to send me some C10 hangers which i know for sure wont fit so then they offered to make some to fit my truck so after going back and forth with the dimensions i got em and somehow in the course of measuring and relaying the dimensions thru my girl cuz my computer has been broke for like a year the holes were off so the first pic is them bolted on with just the top bolts the second one is after they were modified to fit now just gotta get em powdercoated and i can start on the front suspension which is a whole nother long ordeal already with the spindles
